I was wading through the code of one of the administrative scripts (adsutil.vbs) that comes with Microsoft's Internet Information Service (IIS) and came across the code shown below. The utility can be found in the c:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\ directory.
Function DeleteCommand() On Error Resume Next Dim IIsObject Dim IIsObjectPath Dim ObjectPath Dim ObjectParam Dim MachineName Dim DummyVariant Dim DeletePathOnly ReDim DummyVariant(0) DummyVariant(0) = "Crap" ' Set the return code - assume success DeleteCommand = 0
Two highlighted lines caught my attention and I thought that it was very typical of Microsoft - even though their code has some
Crap, they assume success!
